On today’s show, we’re talking about mineral oil spills, bit and brace advantages, wood movement in large panels, power hand planers for flattening boards, replaceable cutters vs traditional turning tools, and planer snipe.
What’s on the Bench
Marc is enjoying football and woodworking. He also has some issues with a particularly scary routing operation. Matt has been focusing on family lately and didn’t have much time for woodworking. Shannon cleared off his clamp rack and feels pretty good about it.
